Trial and Error

iPhone: The Music Video

July 9, 2007 8:40 AM

David Pogue might be the funniest technology reporter out there.

The New York Times' tech guru produced a video called "iPhone: The Music Video" with newly minted lyrics to the tune of Frank Sinatra's "My Way."

My favorite lyrics from the ditty are: "I want my friends to look and drool, I want to say, “Look, now I’m cool!”

But the best part is the finale as Pogue, outside the new Apple store on Fifth Avenue and 58th Street in New York, belts out with a crowd of Apple devotees:

"I took a stand, paid half a grand…And got an iPhone!"

Here's the video on YouTube:

It's already logged more than 145,000 views since last Thursday.
